I'll be interested to know the resolution of this. I haven't had any luck with warranty repairs for lens performance issues, even after multiple tries.

So how common is this issue?

I have one and I don't use it that often (mainly concerts), but I can get some good pictures with it as long as focus it right and hold it still.

I guess I should take better care of mine.

This is probably the first time I heard of issues with the 55-300. Lenses fail, so it's not surprising someone's lens has failed. No need to worry.
